I had the unique pleasure of spending two consecutive weekends at Viamede: the first was for my 45th nursing class reunion (23 women) and the second was for a spring conference (75 women). Viamede is a bit rustic, it is early in the season and some of the cabins needed a little more attention to detail - specifically cleanliness. The food was abundant and delicious for the most part, with the exception of the first night on the 1st weekend when Chef Jay was not there. That meal was definitely below average.
The best selling point of the resort (aside from the spectacular setting) is the staff. These people could not have done more to make our stay pleasurable. From Ben, the GM, who responded to every request with a smile and "can-do" to the very friendly, accommodating Anna and Hannah. Everyone there was a joy to deal with.
It rained all weekend but we still had fun....the indoor pool is great although the tiles could use a good scrubbing.
The best, most comfortable beds. I'd like to go back later in the season when the weather is warmer and I could take advantage of the many outdoor activities.
